Report - Greenbank Synagogue, Liverpool, April 2016

History cobbled together from previous posts: Greenbank Synagogue was built in 1936/7 and is the work of the Liverpool architect Sir Ernest Alfred Shennan. The synagogue was used by its congregation right up until it was shut in 2007. Officials say the closure was largely due to the fall in the Jewish population from around 11,000 to just 3,000 over the last century. Despite being closed, it was given Grade II* listed status to ensure its survival. In 2010, it was put on the ‘at risk’ register by Historic England. Plans have surfaced to knock down the Community Hall Outbuilding and build a block of flats as well as transform the synagogue itself into rooms that are said to retain the ‘architectural beauty’ of the Grade II listed building.

The visit: Following a failed attempt to locate the entry point on a visit in February 2016, returned early morning in April 2016 having seen some more posts. Found the entry point which I clearly overlooked first time:banghead! Once inside waited for the light to improve then enjoyed exploring this wonderful arc deco building and taking the occasional photograph on my iphone5… no Canon or Nikon for me.










Hope this works...first ever post!
